Great place: friendly staff, great location, well equipped, great value for money.


What a truly beautiful hostel and facilities. I almost wish I could have stayed there more than one night. I prefer more warm and welcoming staff, but I can't really complain. I had a dorm room all to myself, I got to pet the massive carpet of a dog, and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings.


I' ll stay there again and again


The owners were very friendly and helpful. We had very good time as it was homely and appreciate their warmth.


The staff was very friendly and helpful - IE they helped me find a taxi and negociated the prices, ordered food for me, and let me choose the moment when I payed for the stay. The garden is beautiful and the atmosfere is good.

I have been in Pretoria for a bit more than a week and I was feeling like home at 1322 backpackers. Absolutely one of the best hostels I have ever been. The staff is more than just friendly. The location is safe and a good basis to move into town and over. Amazing, absolutely recommended. It would definitely be my choice when I will come back in Pretoria

A very beautiful and cosy hostel that may be in the middle of the city, but when you come inside, you will feel like you're at a villa in the countryside. People are friendly and you feel at home. Would love to return some day.

Thank you Nikolay! Looking forward to indeed welcoming you again (: 1322 Team


Very helpful staff, great rooms, and solid bargain. The only thing I would add is that the hostel should note on its directions page that it's within walking distance of the Hatfield Gautrain station.
